|MIT OCW - RES.6-006|
This resource contains demonstrations used to illustrate the theory and applications of lasers and optics. Lasers today are being used in an ever-increasing number of applications. In fact, there is hardly a field that has not been touched by the laser. Lasers are playing key roles in the home, office, hospital, factory, outdoors, and theater, as well as in the laboratory.
